I figured out what was going on here.  This was due to my still using 
the deprecated "Sendmail" DELIVERY_MODULE.  I switched to "SMTPDirect" 
and everything is peachy now.

On a related note, is there any plan to possibly fix/rewrite the 
Sendmail module.  The reason I was using it in the first place is 
because it was much easier in terms of integration with my system since 
using the sendmail binary for outgoing mail bypasses all the post-queue 
content filtering and such that goes on on my server.

On the flipside, setting up SMTPDirect with postfix was just a matter of 
adding an smtpd entry in master.cf that only listens on localhost and 
just permits.  However, it would still be nice to *realistically* have 
an option.
